Psalm 25:15 (Pt. 3)  Thought/Prayer:  Avoid Snares.  Topics:  2 at end.

“My eyes are ever toward the LORD; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.”  (AKJV)  (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com.)
Psalm 91:3   “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of Jehovah, He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in whom I trust.
For he will deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, And from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover thee with his pinions, And under his wings shalt thou take refuge: His truth is a shield and a buckler.”

One more look here, at being caught in a net, or snared.  How is it that we don’t see such an even coming?  How can we allow ourselves to be caught, seemingly without being aware of any danger?

Well, there are a million reasons, of course.  But perhaps one of the bigger ones is:  Inattentiveness.  We are living our lives, and opportunities come up; or problems arise; or we just feel that our lives are having less meaning than they used to.  It’s just quite easy to “keep on keepin’ on,” without taking the time to prayerfully work through all the things that are going on.  We would rather just keep walking life’s treadmill than make ourselves sit down and do some pondering and praying.

But sometimes is it the inattentiveness to the real issues that can wrap us up in some kind of a snare, maybe?  It’s not that we mean to get less out of our lives by not addressing some issues.  It’s just that it’s easy to coast.  And, in other circumstances we make decisions that we know may cost us in the future:  but we take chances that nothing will occur.

Such thoughts may lead to actions that are not really “decided upon” but are rather “happened into.”  But there is mostly no “happened into.”  A lack of decisions are really:  decisions.  A non-decision is in actuality a decision.

For a Christian, all of this may come down to one thing:  Make ourselves look . . . and then make ourselves take notice . . . and then make ourselves ponder . . . ponder and pray.  We may be looking; taking notice; pondering and praying about our own lives.  We should.  But sometimes the Lord leads us to do these things regarding the lives of others.  It is at these junctures of will that we may be able to exhibit the Lord’s influence in others’ lives.  And that can be beautiful.

Lord, help us first to be willing to take time to think and pray and try to listen to Your guidance.  It can be so important for our selves.  And for others.  Please help us to help others, when possible, do the difficult disciplines of looking; taking notice; pondering and praying.  And, Lord, it would be so fantastic if these activities will save the lives of the preborn, the elderly and the disabled.  Then the snares of their lives will be caught up out of their lives.
